Ferguson backs de Gea

Sir Alex Ferguson has praised his goalkeeper David de Gea but he believes there is an agenda against the young Spaniard in the English media which wants him to fail, The Telegraph has revealed.

Ferguson feels that the criticism de Gea has received since moving to England has been unfair and he is happy with the way the youngster has composed himself in the United goal since joining the club in the summer.

He said: “There’s obviously an agenda on De Gea and we experienced that with the press again on Wednesday night after the game in Benfica. For some reason they are desperate for the boy to fail and I don’t understand it.

“He’s 20 and he’s coming into a country where he doesn’t know the culture. There’s a lot he’s had to deal with and he’s showing a lot of composure about the whole thing. He doesn’t speak English, he’s been looking for a house and now found one, he’s been learning to drive in England. He’s not been flapping about in the goalmouth, he’s been really composed. He’s outstanding.”
